Christmas inspired baby names for December babies

Christmas is such a special time of year. From the sparkling lights, sweet holiday treats and the iconic melodies played on repeat to the selfless acts of charity and moving moments of goodwill shown to others.


Whether you are a committed follower of the scripture behind the season or find your own meaning in the sentiment surrounding it, why not capture a bit of that magic for your little one?

If you have a December baby due any moment, or if you’re simply jingle bell crazy for Christmas, there are plenty of monikers to consider.

Aside from the obvious Jesus or Santa, here are some timely favourites.
